One full month of blog posts (even if it was a short month)! Now to find more photos, graphics and rambles to type about.

Tonight, I’ve got nothing other than to report all is well with our wireless hookup! Yes!!!!!! Come to find out, the guys that replaced the new pole are in a local band. I knew about the band and I was familiar with one of them when he was a kid. His Dad, my husband, our nephew and the kid I mentioned in an earlier post all hunted together back in the day. I’m only mentioning it here now to make note of the fact so I can hopefully one day say, “I knew them when!” ;)

In other news and at the risk of boring you to death… we’re still on dialup. :( But, on to the title of this post….

And… she’s sorta back!

Got the phone line in working order and although I am happy to be surfing in my own home again, I hate this dialup connection! Spoiled to high speed? Oh yeah! Hope those guys get out here tomorrow, I don’t have the patience for these slow-as-molasses page loads.

I do have a few new pictures to share, but I think that will have to wait. My nerves are shot from having to wait on the telephone repairmen and the no-show wireless guys. What is up with that?

“We’ll try to be out today, but it could be tomorrow.”

Just give me a flippin’ time, don’t say “try” and “could be”. Say Tuesday before noon and I won’t be thinking I want to punch you in the face when you do finally show up!

The phone company’s response to my automated repair request, “Someone will be out Monday between 8 and 5.” Which means what? Yes, here I sat until 3 p.m. this afternoon waiting on that guy!

Until another day when I’m less stressed (and please let that be tomorrow), I’ll quit typing now. :)

Still in the same boat

I hope to have access tomorrow! Wish us luck!

Oh the horror..

We have no internet access in our home!!! Our wireless antenna has been bent over from the winds and on top of that, our backup dialup connection can’t be used cause our phone line is dead! Do you think someone is trying to tell us something?

The withdrawals are ridiculous and I stood it as long as I could before I came to my Mom’s to check my mail. I am determined to make a post every day this month and so here’s today’s.

Y’all can feel my pain, can’t you? :)

For some odd reason, I get the idea this little mare didn’t really want an audience while she was trying to rise, nor did she care about smiling for the camera!

Thank goodness for gadgets!

My favorite reality shows are opposite each other tonight. That just won’t do! I had to decide which one to watch and which one to record and let me tell you, not an easy decision. After careful consideration, cause you know this is important stuff, I’m taping Idol and watching Survivor. This way, I can fast forward through Ryan’s “after the break” results, Simon’s arrogancy, Paula’s bizarre behavior and the Dawg’s “keeping it real” commentary! If I can get through Jeff’s narrative of the challenges, I intend to have a pleasant evening of reality overload.

Need to know….

The winds died down, the sun was shining brightly and the husband came in wanting to try his luck at fishing for the first time this year.

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind

Whew! For two days, it’s felt like March around here instead of February with these fierce winds! All over the countryside, dirt is blowing from the fields and although it’s been a pleasure to have warmer temperatures and sunshine, I could live without the wind. It… um… I don’t know how to describe it other than to say it makes me antsy to be out in it. I’ve always been that way. I don’t know why and obviously, Bob Dylan was wrong! I found no answers today, only the heebie-jeebies! ;)
